ID on M3 Lee parts.

Post by FGM148 » Mon Apr 16, 2018 12:29 pm

Hi guys!

My name is Karlis, I come from Latvia (former WW2 Eastern Front) and my favorite hobby is WW2 metal detecting.

Recently in a forest by my house i discovered a place where a Soviet M3 Lee tank blew up and its full of small and huge parts of an M3 Lee tank. I have already found rubber pads from the tracks, M72 75mm AP shells, M51 37mm AP shells and ,believe ir or not, a plaque with the tanks serial number!

If you could help me ID these parts it would be awesome and there’s still a huge amount of signals left so I will probably be posting more parts. Thank you!

Oh, and what does R.Z.C. exactly mean?

The RZC are the initials of the Ordnance Department Inspector for the Detroit area. Col. R Z Crane was Ordnance chief from June 1938 to June 1942.
